Definitely not as strong as steel, but as strong as a PVC wrench that size would be, since it's vinyl powder. This is usually used for rapid prototyping parts. Once the prototype is refined enough, the 3d model can be fed to a CNC machine.

The beginning of the video is somewhat misleading, talking about being able to make replacement tools on the go. It is perhaps a step in that direction.

It is very interesting that it can make something with several moving parts together at one time. That's some crazy shit.

They made a statement when scanning in the wrench that it was accurate to a measurement smaller than a human hair. I'm just curious to know if it is that accurate, why is the copy not more exact? Were the differences intentional, or is it unable to be more precise in the duplication?
Valid questions Steveo!

I have also seen the AR type lower receivers, pretty cool. I know some others are making pistols with the printers as well. The guns are not very durable however, single shots for pistols and I think they got 20 out of the AR lower.
